Eliminate Week: It's not too late to save lives


Through The Eliminate Project, the Kiwanis family is changing the world. Kiwanis Service Leadership Programs have raised more than US$3,084,121 to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. If your K-Kids club put the “fun” in fundraising during Eliminate Week, there’s still time to send in your lifesaving donations and be recognized.

K-Kids clubs have united with all Kiwanis-family members and UNICEF to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus from the face of the earth through The Eliminate Project. Kiwanis Service Leadership Programs have raised more than US$3,084,121 as of August 3, 2014. Pat yourselves on the back for all of your great work! Every US$1.80 donated will save or protect one woman and her future babies.

Your K-Kids club was encouraged to raise funds and awareness during Eliminate Week in May. If your club participated, you can still submit funds and be recognized by following these two easy and important steps before September 1:

  1. Send in your donation. Use The Eliminate Project gift form for Kiwanis-family members. Remember to include your club number and name so you can receive proper credit and request recognition items.
  2. Get recognized. Tell us about your project by completing this easy form to receive a participation patch for your club.

Now is also a great time to start planning for Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF 2014:
  • If your K-Kids club participated in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF in 2012 or 2013, a box of supplies will be shipped by September 15. Here is a list of clubs who will be receiving supplies. If your club is not on this list, you can order them from the Kiwanis store by the end of September.
  • Your club can easily raise money for Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF without going door-to-door. Consider hosting a cornhole tournament or pumpkin pie bake-off for donations. Start planning the fun. Find fundraising ideas, information on how to submit funds and how to earn a banner patch at www.TheEliminateProject.org/trickortreat.
Breaking news: We just announced a new opportunity for Kiwanis clubs to support the fundraising efforts of their K-Kids club.Ask your local and/or sponsoring Kiwanis club to match your funds raised for The Eliminate Project and be eligible for the Unity Award (US$500 or more). You will double your lifesaving impact and make a difference together! More details at www.TheEliminateProject.org/slprecognition.
